Jet himself splits the difference between Sam Flynn ( Spin-Offspring, Playful Hacker, troubled adolescence, apparently apathetic to Encom's trouble) and Beck the Renegade ( Hero with Bad Publicity and a very troubled relationship with his father/mentor figure)
Ma3a's appearance and function was recycled into Iso leader Radia
Thorne's costume, coloration, status as a living virus, unleashing hordes of corrupted Programs on the system, and merely being an can be seen in Abraxas.
Unwitting Pawn The initial goal of the protagonist is to rescue his father.
Upon arrival in cyberspace, our hero is immediately sent to the game arena (franchise staple by now)
Jet is rescued from certain death by a mysterious female ally working for his dad
There are a couple levels which involve breaking into the enemy headquarters to steal back Jet's confiscated disc.
The fact that Flynn allegedly went insane and vanished (per the spin-off comic), and Tron's fate is unknown to 2.0's characters, also play very nicely into Patchwork Fic.
